about me

Creating a positive noise about your business!
If you don’t do this then how will people know who you are and what you have to offer?
I have a real passion for supporting businesses to do just this. Do you do enough marketing to get by but don’t really have time to implement a Marketing Plan. Are you concentrating on surviving as a business? Do you have an online presence or a tired website that is out of date? This is where I can help you as a Marketing & Website Design Consultant.
I have a Diploma in Business and Marketing Communications with a vast range of experience in this area. I have a good working knowledge of how to market a business effectively both theoretically and in practice. I worked for several years as a PR Officer at the Real Ideas Organisation which is a Community Interest Company based in the South West funded by the Arts Council of England.
I have also spent the past eight years supporting many businesses in the South West with their Marketing and Website Design needs. My services range from website development, social media marketing, public relations, effective publication advertising and generally covering all aspects of Marketing to suit my clients needs.

 

 

Client Testimonials

Justine has been a much needed support to myself as an Artist managing all aspects of marketing and sales on a global level so that I can concentrate on my passion and keeping up with demand. From the small essentials such as business cards to an e-commerce website, Justine has every aspect of online and print marketing covered and has taken my sales to an all new level. Justine has been invaluable and I couldn’t image what I would do without her daily support.

Doug Eaton – Artist

 

Justine has been such a great help in the design and management of our website for our holiday cottage business in the Forest of Dean. She spent many hours in the design taking photographs to a professional standard and utilising her knowledge of the surrounding area. You can have the best website in the world but if it is not managed correctly it can be a total waste of money. The management of our site is where Justine comes into her own. She is constantly updating the site and regularly looking for ways to get our site up the pecking order such as regular blog posts etc. Justine has also added our site to Facebook and Twitter which exposes the site to a much greater audience.
I have no hesitation in recommending Justine to anyone looking for the design and management of a new website or looking to freshen up an old one, her professional approach will be an asset to any individual or company.

Justine has recently redesigned my website with a completely new look. The website contains a lot of high quality images that really showcases my pottery, and me, my old site significantly lacked this. The text has been simplified so that it is now more concise and easy to navigate for the user. In this day and age people are spending less time browsing and wish to make purchases on the hop. My new site now allows users to make purchases on mobile devices with an easy and secure checkout facility. The product shots really show off my pottery in a fresh and modern layout. Justine also covers all aspects of marketing for Reckless Designs from print material to social media marketing. I have since recommended Justine’s services to other business owners and will continue to do so.

Justine has helped us use social media to get our bike harness noticed, and this has persuaded many people to buy them.

She has helped us to remember to write content and tailored it to suit each different platform which has made lots of people want to share our news with their friends.
Sometimes, when we have had a lot of news at the same time she spreads it out and posts it bit by bit over a few weeks so each post has a high impact.
She has shown us how to run competitions, done photoshoots with us and helped us make sure that we kept up with all our responses which has sometimes been hard to fit around homework.
She makes meetings fun as well as serious and she definitely enjoys cake! Thank you Justine, you helped us so much and we learned a lot from you too.

Thank you so much for your training and continual support. I was really not sure how to write a marketing plan or how to develop the work on all the different social media sites. You’ve really opened my eyes to endless possibilities. Your approach perfectly suited my way of working and you provided professional and friendly support.

Justine, I would like to thank you for all of your hard work over the past couple of years in getting my relevant social media profiles set up to reach a much wider audience and also for helping me edit my web pages. My digital marketing is now working really effective for us as a company and has resulted in a consistent boost in business. The marketing newsletters have really sharpened up our communication with customers past and present. Thank you, once again.
